Hot and Spicy Cucumbers

  • SERVINGS: 4 SIDE-DISH SERVINGS
  • FAST
  • VEGETARIAN
  1. 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  2. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  3. 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  4. 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  5. 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  6. 1 heaping teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  7. About 1 teaspoon Hot Chile Paste
  8. 2 European cucumbers—peeled, halved, seeded and sliced crosswise 1 inch thick
  1. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, salt and sugar. Six minutes before serving, set a wok over high heat. When it's very hot, add the oil and swirl to coat. Add the garlic, ginger and Hot Chile Paste and stir-fry for 15 seconds. Add the cucumbers and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Pour the soy sauce mixture into the wok and stir-fry until the cucumbers are softened but still slightly crisp in the center, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and serve hot or at room temperature.
